    "I'll be the "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." If it sweats off, so be it."

    Perfect!

    Daenerys Targaren is one of my favorite characters. And I like all the suggestions. (Well, Baby Jane would be scary). Thanks everyone. But I think I'm going with Lisbeth Salander. It's funny that DorisH should mention that. It occurred to me this weekend I could keep it simple and avoid wigs and whole costumes by just getting a temporary tattoo. I'll be the "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." If it sweats off, so be it.

    Daenerys Targaryen.

    Though the Elvira suggestion is a darn good one.

    I think Hermione Granger or Lisbeth Salander would be great costumes.

    That would be so convenient. But is there a book character based on a seaweed monster?

    I have considered Lois Lane! It's on my list.

    Take a more practical and safety oriented approach:

    Get a white tee shirt and a pair of white shorts.
    Lay them on your driveway in their respective normal positions, then run one tire of your car over them both bottom to top a couple of times to get a clear imprint of the tire tread.

    The motorists will avoid you, figuring you've already suffered enough....[wink]

    I like that idea. But without the wig.

    Hey, Tarzan is an official contender now. I think running a 10k is pressure enough. But I'm willing to try a low maintenance costume.

    There's always Tarzan :-)

    The only costume I've tried is that of a runner. Still trying to put in a convincing performance in that costume.
